Harnessing the Power of NVIDIA: Pioneering the Future of Industrial Automation

It’s a time when technologies change the world unlike ever before. Case in point: NVIDIA, which not only reinvented gaming with its computer gaming graphics processors and programmable shaders, but is also helping change the world of industry via digitalisation. With its digital twin technology, NVIDIA is vastly transforming the factory floor, turning it into self-driving field of autonomous power centres. Just how NVIDIA built all that – and why – is the topic of this Backgounder.

NVIDIA's Digital Twin Technology: A Leap into the Future

The Genesis of Autonomous Factories

At the core is a digitalisation strategy for industry that makes use of the power of digital twin technology. NVIDIA’s customers in Taiwan’s electronics manufacturing sector, central to NVIDIA’s supply chain, already enjoy the benefits of automation using NVIDIA’s AI and graphics chips. Now, with Omniverse, Isaac AI robot development and NVIDIA Metropolis vision AI, companies can design, simulate and operate fully autonomous facilities that adapt in response to real-world feedback, driving continuous improvement.

The Foxconn Paradigm: A Case Study in Efficiency

Digital twins are created by Foxconn using NVIDIA’s technology and used to simulate new manufacturing processes before they are introduced into the physical factory space. Foxconn engineers use NVIDIA Omniverse to virtually design the most efficient processes and figure out where to place robotic arms and sensors before they are introduced to the real world and can boost production by optimising assembly lines and reducing the time needed to get new technologies to market.

Beyond Foxconn: The Industry Embraces NVIDIA

But the factories of NVIDIA’s customers are also seeing benefits. Delta Electronics in Taiwan is using NVIDIA Isaac Sim for configuring demo production lines; Pegatron is using an Omniverse-powered multi-camera workflow to enhance real-time communications for production floor staff; and Wistron is using Omniverse to develop digital twins of its factories. A trip to Foxconn and a conversation with Hsu indicates that the company is confident that NVIDIA is going to lead the way in developing the kind of efficiencies and operational excellence its customers are looking for.

A Global Adoption

NVIDIA has pushed itself into robotics by making its Isaac robotics platform part of the framework for most of the world’s leading developers. This indicates how critical NVIDIA will be in manufacturing the next generation of AI-powered autonomous machines that will dramatically increase the dexterity, safety, and output of the world’s factories, warehouses, and distribution centres.

Integrating NVIDIA IGX with Holoscan: A Milestone for Edge AI

Pioneering Industrial Edge AI

NVIDIA announcing AI Enterprise-IGX with Holoscan on the NVIDIA IGX platform for industrial edge AIThe announcement of AI Enterprise-IGX with Holoscan on the NVIDIA IGX platform is a stepping stone for a new era of enterprise AI for various medical, industrial, and scientific computing. Production-grade platform for AI, sensor integration, and real-time performance is now available at the level of industrial edge AI. With NVIDIA Holoscan for IGX, enterprises can now bring AI applications to scale in the hyper-converged edge, low latency, and high availability world.

The Heart of Revolution: NVIDIA's Unwavering Commitment to Innovation

Shaping the Future

With its digital twin technology and deep engagement with global manufacturers, NVIDIA is not only a leading, but a shaping, force in the future economy of industry with these innovations – including ever-new developments in AI and robotics, as well as in digital simulation, NVIDIA is at the leading edge of technological development.


Started in 1993, NVIDIA is no longer merely a maker of PC graphics hardware, but a worldwide leader in AI, deep learning, and parallel computing technology, first, foremost, and forever associated with its ‘graphics processing units’ or GPUs. But with important technologies such as the NVIDIA DRIVE™ AI car computing platform; Maximum Overdrive (a data-science product for health sciences); and its Holodeck VR ‘world simulators’, NVIDIA is helping to build the AI brains of cars, redesigning healthcare, and creating new content for virtual reality experiences. NVIDIA is nothing less than a pivot point in the technological evolution of our time.

And the more NVIDIA innovates, the more industries are drawn into a future where virtual and real worlds coexist, creating spaces for breakthroughs that once seemed almost fantastical. But the story of NVIDIA is not about technology for technology’s sake, it’s about what’s possible when vision, ambition, and progress take us to places we once thought were purely imaginary.
